Painful dental emergencies can get worse quickly if they are not treated promptly. Hospital emergency rooms and urgent care clinics are designed to treat health emergencies rather than dental emergencies. If you have a toothache or a broken tooth, where do you go? Our emergency dentist can help. We offer emergency dental care whenever you need it. During your emergency dental exam, we will evaluate your dental issue, make a diagnosis, and recommend a treatment plan. We will stabilize your dental health and get you back on the road to recovery. Call us to schedule your appointment now.
Untreated dental problems can get worse, and over time, they can increase your risk of serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, and dementia. Our experienced dental team is here to provide you with skilled, compassionate care during your emergency dental exam. Even if you struggle with dental anxiety or phobia, our gentle staff members can put your mind at ease and have a variety of calming and relaxing techniques that can make you feel more comfortable throughout your dental treatment.
Common dental emergencies include:
- Dental abscesses
- Gum infections
- Severe toothaches
- Broken or cracked teeth
Broken or lost crown or filling
- Dislodged tooth
- Knocked out tooth
During your emergency dental exam, we will focus on your emergency problem. We may take digital or conventional X-rays and check for swelling, visible infection, and other problems. The goal is to alleviate your acute dental problems, such as pain, swelling, and infection. Antibiotics and pain medication may be prescribed, if needed. We may begin specific treatments, such as root canal therapy or a dental extraction. You might need to return to our office to complete your procedure once the infection or swelling has resolved. A restoration may also need to be placed, especially if you had a treatment such as a root canal.
Since an emergency dental exam is focused on a serious and time sensitive situation, it cannot replace a routine dental exam. Regular checkups play an important role in your dental health and can reduce the risk of dental emergencies. Call our office today to learn more or to schedule your emergency visit.
